Platforms Are Officially Taking Over Street Style at Tokyo Fashion Week

We’re only on Day Three of Tokyo Fashion Week 2018, but in that short time, one thing became very clear about this season’s street style — it’s all about the platforms.

From brogues and boots to sneakers and hybrids, the heightened style is simply ubiquitous. And while the sole may vary, from low-key to sky-high, any semblance of a platform undoubtedly amps up any look. Scroll down to check out one of the biggest shoe trends from the streets of Tokyo right now.

Sturdy-looking leather platform shoes courtesy of Louis Vuitton stood out, worn with monogrammed Gucci socks. Featuring espadrille material, stud detailing and ropelike laces, the style almost has a creeper feel to it.
